Anything to do with obtaining your time to help whether as members, volunteers or educators.

Citizen science is a growing movement that involves everyday individuals in the process of scientific research & brings immense value to the scientific community and society.

By involving the public in data collection, analysis, and interpretation, this collaborative approach democratizes the research process, fostering a more inclusive and accessible environment for scientific exploration.

Cork Nature Networks’ online educational resources.

The Education Portal

We have resources for schools, the public and for those wishing to learn more about species. The contents of this page are a work in progress but we are delighted to open two portals for community education and for primary schools. These resources are free but please do donate if you can to help us improve the resources and increase awareness among everyone about how important and amazing our natural world is.

You can donate as a once off payment or as a recurring payment. You can set up your own donation value. You will have to create an account on the site to donate.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to create an account, you can use the Go Fund Me website using this link.
